We Were Here: The AIDS Years in San Francisco

From Director/Producer David Weissman comes We Were Here. A brilliant documentary that look back at the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the impact it had on San Francisco, and indeed the nation. From wewereherefilm.com:

We Were Here is the first documentary to take a deep and reflective look back at the arrival and impact of AIDS in San Francisco. It explores how the City’s inhabitants were affected by, and how they responded to, that calamitous epidemic.

Though a San Francisco-based story, We Were Here extends beyond San Francisco and beyond AIDS itself. It speaks to our capacity as individuals to rise to the occasion, and to the incredible power of a community coming together with love, compassion, and determination.

We Were Here opens in limited release September 9th. Watch the trailer below.
